I loved Allium and am sad to see it go, however opening at the time it did and then with all the problems Fifth and Main faced...it didn't stand a chance. Bringing in an established brand like Germantown Cafe is a really smart move for that space. I really hope it does well and will come visit when it reopens for sure!
@Dana, I stand corrected! That's what I get for reading too fast the first time through!!
I thought Lime was just relocating to the Gulch? I believe I read that in the Tennessean last week sometime.......
wow, Apparently American Man is 100% Cherokee!!! He never had any other ancestors come from ANY part of the world. That is quite astounding in this day and age to never have ANY ancestors who are immigrants!!
Give me a break. I have Indian ancestry too. I also have Italian and Irish ancestry. Everyone in the US has relatives who were immigrants at one time, so stop this BS of "I was here first!!" It's childish and has no merit. Next please!
I am just as big of a supporter of Arnold as anyone, since he is (so far) the lone representative of Nashville in the Top Chef franchise. That being said, your review of last night's episode is incredibly biased. You have to admit that although Arnold and Lynne did take chances, and really weren't criticized at all for their flavor profiles, the biggest component of this challenge was creating a dish that was sellable on a hotel restaurant menu. They failed at that during both the lunch AND dinner courses, and then on top of that Lynne failed at cooking the pasta (something even a basic home cook could probably get right) and were sent home. I was really sad to see him go, but honestly, it was a deserved elimination last night. If only one person could have been eliminated, it should have been Lynne, but it was a team deal and they knew that going into it when they picked their own partners.
All that being said, I would LOVE to try both the squid ink pasta with mussels and the lamb meatballs from last week. When are they showing up on one of Arnold's menus??
@SL - To maybe clarify what Linda meant when she referred only to Mexican restaurants - it wasn't immediately clear to me from the post that the food was New Mexican (as in the state) and not New Mexican (as in new/exciting/fusion/whatever other buzzword you can think of). I've just never even heard of New Mexican (state) cuisine at all, so it never even occurred to me to think of that until I re-read the post and read through the comments. All that being said, I'm excited to try it!
And on the other commented topic in this post - I am just not impressed with Local Taco. I've tried it time and time again, and the results range from "just ok" to downright inedible (trout taco just didn't work). I'm glad they're doing well (although not to the detriment of other businesses) but it's just not for me.
Just got back from Cha Chah - completely understaffed for the turnout tonight and the food was just ok to boot. We had to wait 20 minutes after being seated to get water and menus, and then 45 more minutes later before our server even brought out some bread to nibble on because the kitchen was so backed up. I'm trying really hard not to judge it based on just tonight, since most places were probably crazy, but it just wasn't a good experience. At least the money went to charity!
